BBS Celebrates the New Year with Dog Resolutions!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Yes, it may be cliché, but BestBullySticks.com thinks resolutions are a great way to start off a new year! However, we also know good resolutions are the kind that are within reach and, even better, if you have someone keeping you accountable. And if you don’t want to make a personal commitment, why not for your dog?! You don’t want to let your dog down, do you? Of course not! Here are some doggy resolutions to consider this New Year!

1. Annual Checkup: Not only is your dog’s annual checkup very important, it’s only once a year! These easy appointments make sure your dog’s health is up to par, shots and vaccinations are up to date, and that illnesses are caught early on.  You can check this resolution off your list quickly and ensure your dog is in tip-top shape all in one vet visit.

2. Exercise: This year will be the year! Well, for your dog it definitely should be. Dogs love to explore and roam, so walks might be a great way for your dog (and you) to get the blood moving! A good game of fetch or Frisbee in the back yard is also a great way to make sure Fido gets good exercise. And if Fido is harboring a little extra weight around the middle, this will help shed those pounds.

3. Diet: This topic is shirked by both two-legged and four-legged species! We all love a good meal, but maybe it’s time to revamp Fido’s daily diet. This doesn’t necessarily mean cutting back, but giving your dog quality food. However, if your dog does need to cut back, why not now? Dogs at a healthy, optimum weight live longer and fuller lives.

M whole elk4. New Experiences: Even if your dog is a homebody or couch potato, there’s nothing wrong with new experiences. Socialization and new experiences make a better, well-rounded, “ready for anything” kind of dog. Trying out a new dog park, taking your dog to the beach or meeting new dogs! And, you can teach an old dog new tricks! Try teaching your dog to shake or high-five! Even a new challenge like a tough dog chew will keep Fido’s mind working! 

5. More Quality Time: Don’t get too caught up on your daily busyness to only pat Fido on the head in passing. Your dog needs daily love and support from you, so in the new year, set aside quality time every day or week to give your dog one-on-one time. It will be meaningful to the both of you. Cuddling in bed, a game of fetch in the yard of a walk around the block make the bond with your dog stronger and more special.

Make a resolution to your dog this year! BestBullySticks.com think it’s won’t be too hard to keep. Happy New Year, Best Bully Sticks Fans! 

Get Fit with Fido: 7 Pet Exercise Tips

If you haven’t already guessed making resolutions is a lot harder then keeping them. It’s a New Year which means a long priority list of resolutions starting off with a new and improved, energetic & healthy you. But while you are writings down your list of do’s and don’ts  don’t forget your pet, perhaps your dog has a few resolutions of his own. With dog obesity on the rise dogs can really benefit from a daily active lifestyle of fetch, a brisk walk or jog around the block.

So, get your butt in high gear for 2011 we recommend the buddy system. Getting in shape is much easier when you have an exercise buddy & some accountability. So, give the treadmill a break and look no further then at your feet. Dogs make excellent running & jogging companions. They are always eager for a good run to help you shed those unwanted Holiday pounds or maintain your beautiful physique. But before you get off the couch, put down the remote & pint of ice cream and get on your running gear. Here are a few tips to make running with your dog easy for the both of you. Remember safety first!

1. Get a Checkup. If you are considering setting a daily exercise regime make sure you and your dog both get a clean bill of health from the doctor. Check with your veterinarian before starting your dog on an exercise program to make sure running is right for them.

2. Warm up your dog by walking first. Put your pet through a nice brisk walk or short jog to loosen up muscles and get the heart pumping. Like humans, dogs can experience signs of stiff-ness after the initial run. Once run is over let your dog cool down with a walk at the end.

3. Pace Yourself. Build up slowly, and watch for signs of fatigue. Remember dogs get tired as well. Like us they need to be slowly conditioned to handle whatever terrain & distance you set in front of them. So build up endurance over time. If your dog lies down during a workout, end the session  or give them a time out.

If your dog appears to be overheating stop the jog immediately. Cool him down slowly with cool water (not cold). Signs of overheating include the following

Excessive panting
Increased salivation
Red gums
Increased heart rate
Vomiting
Diarrhea
Weakness

4. Carry Water. Keep water on hand before, during and after a workout.

5. Be aware of your dogs running surface. If your dog is not accustomed to running on pavement, build up gradually. Remember dogs don’t have the leisure of throwing on a pair of jell shocked absorbing running sneakers. The only thing between your dogs paws & the pavement are his pads. For this reason it is important that you first build up your dogs endurance & pads toughness by with walking distance.

6. Watch the weather forecast. Dogs cannot regulate heat as efficiently as humans when temperature rises and cool down by panting and sweating through their  pads. When the mercury rises dogs are at greater risk for heat stroke & dehydration.  Opt to jog, walk or run with your dog early in the morning or late evening and avoid the hottest time of the day.

7. Leash up! Keep your dog (even the most obedient ones) on a leash and by your side when running for his protection & others. It is important that you rein in your dog and have complete control. Don’t let your dog run ahead on leash only to leave you dragging behind. Keep in mind that the whole purpose of exercising is not only to get in shape but to bond with your loyal companion.

7 Tips for Keeping Your Dog Behaved When Visiting Dog Parks: 101 Dog Care Tips

shutterstock_105853361_sm Who doesn’t love taking their four legged friend to the local dog park. There is nothing better than getting out to frolic in the fresh air with your loyal companion. Dog parks are a great way to for your dog to get some exercise while allowing them to socialize with other dogs. There is only one thing that can ruin a perfect day at the dog park: bad doggie behavior. Here are some easy tips to ensure a great day at the dog park while keeping your dog happy and safe.

1. Make sure your dog is not aggressive. Nothing can ruin a trip to the dog park than an aggressive misbehaving dog. So if you know your dog will be aggressive it is just better to skip the dog park until Fido gets some obedience training.

2. Come, Sit, Stay: It is very important that your dog responds to basic commands and can be controlled very quickly.

3. Where and what….make sure you know where your dog is at all times and what he or she is doing. It important to keep a watchful eye and sure your dog is not getting out of control or disturbing others.

4. Don’t be afraid to be a called tattletale at the dog park, speak out because safety comes first. If other dogs are misbehaving don’t feel guilty about telling their owners. Most likely the owner may not be aware that their dog is acting out of control and they will thank you.

5. Be #1 at the dog park by cleaning up #2! If your dog does their business, please pick it up!

6. Bring toys and balls and have fun! But be ok if you lose some to other dogs at the park.

7. If you have a small dog and a large dog approaches fear not, just introduce and make sure all tales are wagging. Don’t pick your dog up it draws attention and may make your small dog scared.
